(NBC News) If you have a little bit of vacation time stashed away, this may be the week you decide what to do with it, because somebody's got a deal you may find difficult to refuse.

It's always much cheaper to take a cruise this time of year, and this year cruise prices are at all-time lows.

In fact, MarketWatch reporter Catey Hill says cruises are cheaper right now than a motel stay.

"It's almost to the point cheaper than the Motel 6 when you consider that on a cruise you get all your food included in that price," Hill says.

Carnival is offering cruises for as low as $35 a night, while Royal Caribbean has taken as much as a thousand dollars off some sailings.

The deals are there because it's off-season, plus, ships are repositioning from chillier to warmer regions of the world.

Some bad publicity the industry's gotten recently is also contributing to the bargains.
